Roadway safety isn't a new topic for emergency responders. People dying, being injured, or damage to vehicles is not new either. So how come we are kicking and screaming when it comes to making our roadway scene operations safe? Why do we only address roadway safety on large highways and during motor vehicle crashes? Why don't we address roadway safety more often on residential streets or during medical operations when the big blocker truck is not there?
